1. Safely through another week
God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek
On the approaching holy day;
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest!
2 Mercies multiplied each hour
Through the week our praise demand;
Guarded by Almighty power,
Fed and guided by His hand:
though ungrateful we have been,
And repaying love with sin.
3 While we pray for pardoning grace,
Through the dear Redeemer's Name,
Show thy reconcilèd face,
Take away our sin and shame;
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this night with Thee.
4 When the morn shall bid us rise,
May we feel Thy presence near;
May Thy glory meet our eyes,
While we in Thy house appear:
There afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast.
5 May Thy Gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
May the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints:
Such the days of rest we love,
Till we join the Church above.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
